Nanaimo Riptides Swim Team is excited to have our float again in the upcoming Heritage Festival Parade! Celebrating Nanaimo’s broad cultural heritage, the Nanaimo Heritage Festival Parade displays our community’s passions and helps tell the story of our heritage, from our First Nations people, to our coal and natural resources, to the railroad and marine transportation and beyond.

Parade day is on Sunday May 19th, 2019 – starting at 1 pm sharp downtown Nanaimo at Victoria Crescent. The parade travels along Commercial street and makes it’s way down to Maffeo Sutton Park where it completes. The theme this year is ALL ABOUT THE KIDS! We will need Parent Chaperones, Senior Swimmers Volunteers, and Swimmers to go on our float!!!

This was a successful and fun parade where in the past - NRST won Best Heritage Theme!!  We are really looking forward to participating again this year!  Please sign up for this event!
